    I can't play, it seems it wasn't the wire that wasn't working, but there is poor connection from the laptop to the wire, it was working fine yesterday but this morning it isn't, it can't be that the replacement has gone the day after we got it

    Thanks for entering. Since you've never used Multiplayer, you should try logging-on now to see if you can. Most people have issues connecting online if they've never tried that feature before.

    - Don't forget to type in your CD-Key under "Change CD-Key" (everybody has to do this before they can log onto Multiplayer)

    See you in a few hours!

    *** UPDATE: I changed the tourney map to the Scottish Highland ***

    The reason I did this was because the previous Greek Shore map gave an unfair advantage to the host (who would have an advantage in elevation).

    In other news...since there's less people, this gives us the opportunity for something splendid! I'll give the players here more details when we meet online. I'm excited!

    Good thinking. The last time I played BI online was in a RTWH forum party. That was fun, and I hope that this'll be the same!

    *** I provided two links for two video replays from today: the Barbarian Invasion Final and the Mini-Tourney Final ***

    BARBARIAN INVASION TOURNAMENT
    Once again, this tournament day consisted of two tournaments:
    - the main tourney ("Barbarian Invasion Tourney")
    - the mini-tourney (the "No Egypt RTW Tourney")

    THE MAIN EVENT: the Barbarian Invasion Tourney
    The Barbarian Invasion Tourney consisted of only two people:
    - Prince_of_Macedon
    - Selifator

    So, we played the Final right away which consisted of a best 2 out of 3.

    Barbarian Invasion Final: Game 1 (with video replay)
    - SELIFATOR (Sassanids) defeats PRINCE_OF_MACEDON (Burgundii)

    I have to tell you: I should've done my homework on the Sassanids. This was my first time fighting against them. Tactically, I did everything by the book: I surrounded his army completely in two main pockets, but my Burgundian warriors were outfought by the Sassanid Persians. The battle was pretty awesome (even though I lost). Here's the video replay of that battle:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLCx77o0tt8



    Barbarian Invasion Final: Game 2
    - SELIFATOR (Sassanids) defeats PRINCE_OF_MACEDON (Huns)

    I heard the Huns were pretty good in this game. But I honestly don't have much experience in steppe warfare. I've played 2-3 games as the Scythians and Parthians on RTW, but I never got a feeling for horse archery tactics. In any case, I was completely annihilated in this battle. The battle was long but only because my Huns were running away for so long. No video replay of this massacre.



    *** BARBARIAN INVASION TOURNEY CHAMPION: Selifator. All hail Selifator the Barbarian! ***


    THE MINI-TOURNEY: the No Egypt RTW Tourney
    After the Barbarian Invasion Final, we saw Scutarii, Petros and Leonidas just hanging around. So we decided on holding a mini-tourney using RTW. We fought in the Syrian Flats. But for this tourney, Egypt was not allowed. Many apologies to Ra.

    PARTICIPENTS
    - Prince_of_Macedon
    - Xyphos_Pet
    - LeonidasofSparta
    - Selifator
    - Scutarii

    Mini Tourney: Round 1
    1) SCUTARII (Seleucids) defeats SELIFATOR (Greece)
    1) XYPHOS_PET (Armenia) defeats LEONIDASOFSPARTA (Macedon)
    1) PRINCE_OF_MACEDON - BYE

    Mini Tourney: Round 2
    2) LEONIDASOFSPARTA (Julii) defeats SELIFATOR (Scythia).
    2) PRINCE_OF_MACEDON (Macedon) defeats SCUTARII (Seleucids)
    2) XYPHOS_PET - BYE

    Mini Tourney: Round 3
    3) XYPHOS_PET (Macedon) defeats SCUTARII (Pontus)

    Mini Tourney: Round 4
    4) XYPHOS_PET (Macedon) defeats SELIFATOR (Scythia)
    4) INCONCLUSIVE: LeonidasOfSparta (Julii) & Scutarii (Parthia)

    Mini Tourney: Round 5
    5) PRINCE_OF_MACEDON (Macedon) defeats SELIFATOR (Greece)
    5) PRINCE_OF_MACEDON (Macedon) defeats LEONIDASOFSPARTA (Thrace)

    Mini Tourney: Deciding Game (with video replay)
    5) PRINCE_OF_MACEDON (Seleucids) defeats XYPHOS_PET (Macedon)

    Up until this point, both Xyphos_Pet and myself had won all of our previous games. So it was up to this game to decide who would take home the mini-crown for the Mini-Tourney. Here's the video replay:

    I was surprised to win those games at BI though. It has been a long time since I played that. Anyway, another succesfull tournament.
    Hope that the next time a BI tournament is held, more people show up.

    Thats fine, it wasn't your fault, just a bad connection. But yeah, it looked like it would have been good. We'll have to rematch next time.

    Thanks, everyone, for coming out. As usual, it was a blast. We'll try to hold another Barbarian Invasion tourney in the future. I definitely want to try my luck again against Selifator's Persians.

    Bwahaha, you may come but I will lay you to rest on the towers of silence.
    You shall lay there for an eternity as your bones will warn anyone who thinks of threatening me.

    In other words, Bring it on!
